Keep Customers Safe From Slips And Falls

How Does Swan Help Keep Customers Injury-Free?

 

 

During the long winter months when it’s wet and slippery outside, it’s crucial for businesses to ensure that they have proper safety precautions in place to prevent customers from slipping and injuring themselves.  According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), most general industry incidents involve slips and falls.  Sadly, an estimated 20-30% of people who experience a slip or fall will suffer moderate to severe injuries.

 

Let’s not wait until an accident happens before we take the proper steps to create a safe environment for both customers and employees.  Swan has several options to help keep your floors clean and your customers injury-free.  We provide rental mats, which reduce the dirt, mud and moisture tracked into the building.  We also provide scraper mats which provide a slip-resistant surface, and work wonders for high-risk and wet areas. 

 

Finally, we have treated mops which help keep floors looking shiny and professional. 

 

Prevent potential safety issues and liability- call Swan today!

Keep Your Business Smelling Fresh And Clean

Why Is Having A Fresh Smell In the Air Important?  

 

While it is crucial to make a great first impression in regards to the appearance of the business, it is also vital to take note of the smell in the air.  This is something that may attract or detract a customer from returning to a business.  In fact, according to the American Marketing Association, people stay as much as 44% longer in businesses that smell good.  They also go on to explain that scents have the ability to evoke an emotional response, and when used correctly, can increase feelings of happiness.  Having a fresh smell in the air helps the customer feel and believe that they are in a clean environment.

 

Swan provides automatic air fresheners for any room that might need some freshening up.  We have several fragrances to choose from.  Plus, we provide the unit and replenish the fragrance.

Why are Swan's Rental Mats Efficient?

What Materials Make Swan's Rental Mats Effective?  

 

The first step to ensuring your customers are safe from slips and falls is to place matting in entrances and heavy-traffic areas.  However, not just any mat will do the job right.  For instance, you don’t want to purchase mats that curl in the corners and cause customers to trip.   Our rental mats are specially manufactured with premium high quality materials to provide an outstanding performance at your facility.  Here are some of these materials:

  • Anti-skid nitrile rubber backing customized for hard floor surfaces or carpeted floors
  • Rubber backing helps prevent curling and cracking, and allows the mat to lay completely flat
  • Rubber borders facilitate transition and cart traffic
  • Cut pile yarn allows dirt to penetrate and hide in between fibers until the next service from Swan
  • Super absorbent 100% nylon cut pile carpet surface resists packing and crushing

Standing Desks and Anti-Fatigue Mats

Use A Standing Desk?  Save Your Legs With Anti-Fatigue Mats!

 

If you work in an office, I’m sure you’ve discovered how sitting for long periods can be taxing on your muscles.  Many offices are now providing standing desks as an option to try and combat this issue.  In fact, research shows that using a standing desk can improve employees’ health, mood and productivity. 

However, standing for long periods of time can also be detrimental to one’s health.  Leg muscles can become totally static and constricted as they work overtime to keep the person in an upright position.  Blood flow is also often reduced which causes pain and discomfort.  This is where anti-fatigue mats come in.  When a person stands on one of these mats, his/her muscles will subtly contract and expand as they adjust to the flexibility of the mat.  This muscle movement increases blood-flow and increases the amount of oxygen reaching the heart.  Plus, fatigue is significantly reduced.  And let’s not forget the comfortability of anti-fatigue mats!   Who wouldn’t feel happier at work when they feel more comfortable and at ease?   

To learn more about the many benefits of an anti-fatigue mat, call Swan today!

Save time and money by keeping dirt at the door

​Entry Mats capture dirt

 

Studies have proven that it can take up to $500 to remove 1 pound of dirt that has been tracked into your business. 

If you have an entry mat, and your customers take at least three steps on a mat, it will remove 90% of the dirt that would otherwise have been tracked into your shop. The entry mat is your first line of defence against this dirt.

Further studies have shown that 80% of the dirt that enters a business comes through the door. So place mats at all entrances, and save yourself both time and money, while preserving your floors and maintain a cleaner environment indoors.
